to iowa farm country voters penalling to end what he called the obama administration overregulation of agriculture and promised to open more world markets and reduce energy costs. >> there are big differences between the president and me. he has no plan for rural america. no plan for agriculture. no plan for getting people back to work. i do. >> romney released a policy paper on rural issues and ripped the president for squeezing the economy critically important agriculture industry. >> president has idea he wants to raise the tax rate from 3% to 40%. that won't be good for forms. my own view is i want to take the tax rate down. >> following iowa, romney flew to ohio, critical battleground to his victory strategy, where the voter registration ends today. romney i return at least four times in just the next week. romney aides are touting their ground game and grassroots enthusiasm. in florida, 43.5% of absentee ballot requests came from republicans. 39% for democrats. among those returned so far, 45% are g.o.p. only 38% are democrats. in colorado, republicans requested 656,000 absent
is that it took the obama administration eight days before acknowledging the attack was, in fact, a terrorist act. i want to bring in utah congressman jason chaffetz, a member of the oversight panel. chairman of the subcommittee and just got back from libya after spending the weekend there on a fact finding mission. welcome back to the show. let's just begin with where specifically in libya did you go and what did you find? >> could not get into benghazi, still too dangerous. the first thing we did is i got emotional and talking to the people there on the ground. they lost four loved ones. their ambassador, they're away from their families, they're serving their country, and after we did that, we toured the embassy itself, looked at what was going on with the security and had some good lengthy discussions about what did and did not happen leading up to the event on 9/11. >> what was your biggest takeaway from the trip, biggest takeaway, biggest frustration. >> upon reflection, there was not a single person that ever mentioned this video that the obama administration claims sparked the whole thing
that they are in the car with us. >> reporter: the obama administration tells contractors they don't need to send out layoff notices days before the election, and if they get sued for ignoring the law the government will pay their expenses and lockheed martin says it will honor the request and hold off telling its worker but in a letter republican senators graham and john mccain warn 15 major defense contractors, writing, quote, it is our fear, should you rely on the guidance and fail to comply with the warren act requirements, you will be setting your company up for serious legal and financial repercussions, and, graham calls the situation disturbing. >> not only did it cut the warn act, it says a president, a president of the united states -- a precedent the executive branch of government, through the president's actions, can set aside existing statutes. >> reporter: administration officials insist their guidance is legal. and, consistent with all federal contracting laws, and, regulations. rick? >> rick: mike emanuel in washington, thanks. >> arthel: "fox news alert" alert on the deadly meningitis
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
back-up to the fbi team on the ground. what happened there, who may be responsible and what the obama administration has said about it is a growing issue in the presidential campaign. and after a syrian shell landed in turkey on wednesday killing five women on impact and then turkey fired back, the turkish parliament today approved possible broader military action against syria. this is one to watch. turkey says this is not a declaration of war, but a warning that turkey will defend itself. syria has now apologized nota y notably, but this incident has raised grounded fears of a wider war. amon is on the ground tonight in turkey. we've put some of his reporting on our website tonight. >>> still ahead as we continue, new research this evening about a chemical we all come in contact with that has raised questions before. this time, the concern is about mothers and their babies. and later, an extraordinary view of the world like we've never seen it before. sweetie, you have to scrub it first. no you don't, honey. yes, you do! don't! i've washed a few cupcake tins in my day... oh, so you
talked about cutting tacks for the middle class. obviously the obama administration takes issue with it and says it isn't true. do you think this could be enough, if mitt romney could make the case for him to win the election? >> i think it's a very important point. remember why he wants to have the tax reform he wants. it's to make sure that the united states grows better than we've seen in the past four years. and what mr. romney is trying to say is, look, we have all these people out of work. we have all these people with jobs whose incomes are not growing. let's lower rates, broaden the base, be respectful of the middle class and the deficit by but have a better tax policy in place. it's good positions for him. the president can't even get the first step right. instead of lowering rates and broadening the base, he is insisting on raising taxes. that's a bit of a tough sell right now. it was the same president who, in 2010, said we can't afford to raise taxes on anyone. the economy is too weak. we're growing faster then than we are now. >> how big an issue could it be for dem
because this is a good thing for the obama administration. jack welch bei one of those. >> what i would say to those that say that we're cooking the books, first of all, it insults the integrity of the labor department, but secondly, it also means that they're not looking closely enough at the numbers, and typically what happens is that analysts put too much emphasis on the jobs report number. that number by virtue of the way it's collected from some 130,000 establishments and it's done through some by fax machine and others, that number is always going to be very variable. it's much like the adp number that we get earlier than even that number, so it's adjusted up and down every month, and so some months it will be down and adjusted upward, and other months it will be up and adjusted downward. >> it's a balance. >> yes. that's going to happen. but what's interesting is that -- >> tell us real quick what's interesting. >> last month it was adjusted upward, and we would expect it to happen this month. >> it's good news all around. thank you, danny. >> here's what we're working on for thi
have been criticizg how the obama administration has handled this. >> well, that's, of course, with democrats that are saying that over here at the state department you are never going to get them to say that, suzanne. it's simply not what they would do. if there were problems or there wasn't enough protection, they want to take that as a lesson for other places in the world where diplomats are working. right now what they're saying is they're collecting all of the documents and all of the information that they have to and they will make them available. >> do we expect that the secretary is actually going to testify before this committee? is there actually precedence for this? >> you know, i asked that yesterday, in fact, and they said she was not asked in that letter to testify, but there will be herself -- the state department official says there will be testifying. dwoent know precisely at this point who they are. don't forget there are, like, three investigations. you have the fbi investigating. you have the state department's own accountability review board. there's quite
president reagan did in the czech republic. president obama seems to have missed that. he comes into these things late. his own administration describes him as leading by following. you don't lead by following. if you're following, you're following. that's what we see in seyria. that's what we saw in libya, in egypt. and now we see tremendous confusion on the part of this administration about what's really going on in the middle east. you look at libya, it's a scandal. i mean, what happened with libya is an absolute scandal of the b biggest proportions. i think only because the campaign is going on is it being held back. the white house, it seems to me, knew there was real danger to that ambassador. not only did they provide the security necessary, it sounds to me that they reduced the security, which is astounding. i don't know if that's true. one congressman told me that. if that's true, that's astounding. >> you saw secretary of state madeleine albright call romney speech full of platitude and free of substance. >> i'm sure the former secretary of state would say that. the re
